P.J. Crowley was the spokesman for the US State Department when Private Bradley Manning was charged with the largest leak of classified information in America’s history. Crowley resigned in 2011 after publicly criticising the way Manning was being treated in detention. Crowley calls this week’s verdict in the Manning case 'right'.

Also, a university rower from the US is bringing competitive boating to Afghanistan. Plus, the American engineer who is working on a new type of fertiliser that can’t be used to build bombs. And, how having a Coke and a smile became a global experience.
